2014 RAVE Awards

Residential Architects Vision and Excellence Awards

Mpls.St.Paul Home & Design Magazine is celebrating its 11th annual RAVE Awards, which honor exceptional work by Minnesota architects. This year we have 10 categories, covering new homes, remodels, kitchens, baths, and special projects. Judges will be looking for variety in style and location so brainstorm your best work, be it urban, suburban, country, cabin, traditional, or modern. This is a chance for any and all licensed architects, including AIA members, to submit their recent work as we prepare again to showcase the very best in local architecture.


All architects who submit projects will be recognized at a reception on Thursday, May 8 at Casa Verde Design in Minneapolis. The winners will be honored and promoted in print, digital, and social media. The winning projects will also be featured in the July issue of Mpls.St.Paul Home & Design Magazine (circulation 83,000).


Submission process has now been closed. Check back May 9th when winners are revealed!
